Every four years, during the Olympic Games, world-class athletes become the center of attention for sports enthusiasts and casual fans alike. There are always a handful of athletes who get a bit more attention than others and oe of those athletes, is Team USA’s Olympic Hurdler, Lolo Jones. The 29-year old speedster has “fought and crawled” her way to the top and captured the attention of magazines, sponsors and fans along the way.
Lolo is featured on the August cover of OXYGEN, a popular female fitness magazine. If you follow her on twitter (@lolojones) you get a feel for her personality. When she isn’t joking about her dating life (or lack of having a boyfriend) she’s tweeting humorous things like “Coach, told me to go do a pool workout. So I went & did some Push ups next to the pool. What?! I aint gettin this hair wet #mixedchick #afro.”

Lolo has been focused on one goal, Olympic Gold. She had the fastest time in the 100M Hurdles heading into the 2008 Beijing Olympics and was a favorite to win. She was on her way to accomplishing that goal until she clipped a hurdle in the finals. She finished out of medal contention and has been waiting for redemption since that moment. She’s currently in London hoping to take care of unfinished business.
